Autumn colours with Fancy Pants – True Friend.
Hey there x It’s Sheena here with my October post. This month I’ve chosen to work with a fabulous range from Fancy Pants called True Friend. My friends will not be surprised to learn that I was drawn to this range in the shop because of it’s wonderful autumn colour palette as it’s so very me.
This first page focuses on a recent gift from a friend & shows how I like to fill it when the weather turns colder outside! I’ve used lots of the brag cards & a frame all from the Fancy Pants True Friend range. I love the versatility of “project Life” type cards & how they can be used on all types of crafting projects. So if a manufacturer makes them to coordinate with their range they always find there way into my basket.
Just for you.
I’ve used Bond as the background paper & added stencilling & texture paste for added interest. The title is a cut file with hand stitching over the letters and all finished with a selection of embellishments plus a gift tag.
For my second page I continued with the brag cards pack, this time in a more formal arrangement. The corrugated cardboard is a great addition to the Fancy Pants paper pack.
You Make Me Happy.
To soften the edges I’ve added a tag, flair & ticket from this same range plus some die cut leaves which I water coloured in colours sympathetic to the papers. The paper clip from Lawn Fawn is a perfect colour match too.
For my third page this month I was totally inspired by the Fancy Pants frame – grab your hat – lets go on an adventure – as I’d recently taken a photo of my daughter in her new school coat which has the most fabulous hood as long as you don’t want to see that is!!
I’ve used Little Things patterned paper as my base and added gesso, paint & machine sewing to give an impression of this fluffy hood! The photo & frame is on a cluster of patterned paper & brag cards plus a doily from my stash. In the Fancy Pants paper pack there are 2 alpha sticker sheets with literally hundreds of letters for you to use on your pages and I’ve combined these with a cut file to complete my title..
The paint has been applied using an old plastic store card & the ovals using a cardboard tube.
Many thanks for looking, see you all next month x
